No one can accuse Ramona Rizzo of not being authentic in the mafia ties department!
The reality star is all set to marry Joseph Sclafani before he begins a 15-year prison sentence for cocaine trafficking. Unfortunately the feds want to stop the nuptials and are accusing Ramona and her fiancée of staging the wedding for a Mob Wives storyline!
Here's what's happening: Joseph, who is currently in jail, is seeking a furlough from New York's Metropolitan Detention Center to visit his gravely ill father, Augustus, who has liver cancer. Unfortunately federal prosecutors believe that is a scheme for Joseph to leave jail in order to have a "shotgun" wedding with Ramona, which will be featured on Mob Wives!
Reality TV stars turned out for the MTV VMAs last night, while not too many other celebrities/musicians bothered.
Melissa Gorga,Joe Gorga, Snooki, Farrah Abraham, a few Mob Wives, and more were snapped on the red carpet before the event and also at a few of the after parties going on around NYC. But if you watched the VMAs, you know that barely any big name stars were in attendance. I tuned in and lost count of how many times the cameras scanned the audience and only focused in on Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Will Smith and family, Lady Gaga and One Direction. That's it. No Kardashians cheering on their beloved Yeezus, although I swore I saw Kylie Jenner sitting behind the Smith fam. It didn't feel like they gave away very many awards, either. The whole thing was just "off". I will give props to Justin Timberlake – he's the real deal and performed his ass off!
Did you watch the show last night? I think I would've been more entertained watching Melissa Gorga perform than a few of the duds they had on.

If you've been watching Mob Wives since its inception, you know it wasn't always Big Ang and spa days and break-downs. The ladies used to be scary violent until they realized what an atrocious example they were setting for their kids. Now, even with underlying tension, they're relatively tame. Even the sharp-tongued threats of Ramona Rizzo have been soothed with the sweet feelings of true love, even if that love has to be expressed via telephone while staring into her lover's eyes through a sheet of plate glass. Le sigh…and more on that in a bit!
I guess VH1 was getting bored with the lack of drama and feuding because the network is mixing it up with new cast member Alicia DiMichele Garafola…and she and Karen Gravano are not going to see eye-to-eye. Why, you ask? Oh just a little thing called "Karen's dad admitted he put a hit out on Alicia's father-in-law at the command of John Gotti." No biggie.
There is never a dull moment for VH1's breakout star Big Ang. Not only is the lip injected, boobalicious, tat-happy Staten Island lady the voice of reason on the network's Mob Wives, she has scored her second spin-off! It just proves my theory that there is no such thing as too much Ang!
After anchoring the light-hearted show Big Ang, the Drunken Monkey owner decided to try her hand at expanding her brand (and bar!) to Miami. With a new watering hole comes a whole new series…clearly! Mob Wives creator–and Renee Graziano's sister–Jennifer Graziano shared the new via Instagram earlier, and this girl couldn't be more excited!

Mob Wives'Renee Graziano has certainly been through the ringer over the last few seasons of the VH1 hit. We've watched her struggle with depression and prescription pill addiction which led to a recent stint in rehab.
Of course, at the root of most of her issues is ex-husband Junior Pagan who reconciled with Renee last season in an effort to turn state's evidence on her father. After her father was sent to prison, Renee's problems spiraled out of control and she was riddled with guilt. Well, now Renee has some news that she is thrilled to share. Something is happening on Wednesday, and for Renee, it can't get here fast enough!
